KBS Seminar Series on Re-imagining Our Future Post-COVID

As the world grapples with the ongoing threat of COVID-19 and its effects, people across all sectors are systematically reacting and responding to the crisis. At the Kemmy Business School in the University of Limerick, a new online series of seminars aims to examine a post-COVID Ireland, asking how we can use this moment of crisis to shape a more sustainable future.

The series, which is run in conjunction with European Expo 2020, will discuss the economic, policy, and industry challenges resulting from COVID-19 and new opportunities we can explore, particularly in relation to leadership, sustainability and smart cities design.

Re-imagining Our Future Post-COVID will be delivered through Microsoft Teams live events and will be delivered by KBS and UL academics, as well as guest lecturers.
